Show default playback error dialog – Displays the Playback Error dialog box when a playback error occurs, which is used to determine a playback action to take when an error occurs. Use the Playback Error dialog box to enter debug mode to diagnose errors in a visual test.
Displaying the Playback Error dialog box is the default behavior when playback encounters an error.
End playback – Ends visual test playback when an error occurs. No other steps in the visual test play back. When playback ends, the Playback Complete dialog box appears, which determines the action to take when playback completes.
End test – Plays back the visual test specified in the Asset property, then ends at the step where the error occurred. When playback ends, the Playback Complete dialog box appears, which determines the action to take when playback completes.
The Retry step action is useful for projects that have visual tests that reliably handle errors or fix potential errors to anticipated test issues. For example, if a visual test accesses a page in a browser application that may not reliably load, a 'fail to attach' error may occur. The Retry step action can direct the visual test to another visual test that reliably loads the page before attempting to interact with it, thereby resolving the playback error.
Resume next – Plays back the visual test specified in the Asset property, then attempts to execute the step immediately after the step that caused the error. The step that caused the error is not re-executed.
Go to – Plays back the visual test specified in the Asset property, then navigates to the predefined Label step specified in the Label property and continues playback. Using Go to allows that visual test to skip steps that could potentially contain failures similar to the one that occurred during playback, and navigate to another section of the test.
The Action to take property value can now be changed to change the behavior of the step. Changing that to value to Retry step changes the step as follows:On error playback '[visual test]' and then 'Retry step'
This property only appears when Action to take property is set to Go to.
